Very early October surprise.

The former Port Authority official who personally oversaw the lane closings on the George Washington Bridge in the scandal now swirling around Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey said on Friday that the governor knew about the lane closings when they were happening, and that he had the evidence to prove it.

In a letter released by his lawyer, the official, David Wildstein, a high school friend of Mr. Christie’s who was appointed with the governor’s blessing at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls the bridge, described the order to close the lanes as “the Christie administration’s order” and said “evidence exists as well tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge of the lane closures, during the period when the lanes were closed, contrary to what the governor stated publicly in a two-hour press conference” three weeks ago.

The “evidence to prove it” line is key, obviously.

Having never been a big Christie fan when it comes to 2016 anyway, this news isn’t very moving. Expect the MSM, however, to continue “GOP IN TATTERS!!!” stories based on nothing more than the false premise that they decided he was the only Republican hope.

If this is true, we should be relieved that it came out now and not in October 2016.

That said, every single potential GOP office runner should have it burned into their skulls the certainty that their opponents would create such stories about them with zero evidence to back it up. It will happen.

If they "reach across the aisle" they will pull back a bloody stump. They must not assume civility or good faith. Their Democrat opponents do not just mean to win over their opposition, they mean to destroy that opposition, including the human being behind the name and their families.

If you are running as a Republican, know this: You Are Hated.

The NYT quietly changed the article later, as is their wont.

Remember this is the fellow who was fired for the closure. He's been shopping for immunity and not finding any takers, so he is having his lawyer try to sweeten the pot a bit. There is nothing specific offerred, and there may well be nothing to offer.

Christie was never going to be the nominee. You need a good start in the Republican primaries. He was never going to be strong in NH, SC, or NV. He was "the frontrunner" of a field of many, three years in advance, with 14-18% of the divided vote.

Claiming to be the Three Monkeys of Oblivion only works for democrats. Christie not only lies like a democrat, but is stupid enough to think he can get away with such crap like that without officially being one.

Christie will eat himself to death by 2016 anyway.

Not so fast. This is the NY Times. This is Kate Zernicke.

The question is not whether he knew it when it happened. Anyone listening to NYC traffic reports knew it when it happened. The question is whether he knew it was going to happen beforehand and whether he tacitly or officially approved it.

" The question is whether he knew it was going to happen beforehand and whether he tacitly or officially approved it. "

Actually, I think the question is, did he know beforehand THAT it was being done and WHY it was being done?

If he knew about it, but was told it was a routine maintenance issue, then he likely knew about it and forgot about it very quickly. IF that's the case, there is no wrongdoing on his part.

It's only wrongdoing if he knew, and approved (tacitly or explicitly), the WHY of it.


But either way, this was done by his hand-picked inner circle. If he didn't do the dirty deed himself, he still hired the kind of people who do this kind of thing.

That tells you a lot about his values.

Gov. Krispy should have switched parties when he learned this story was about to break. At least that way The Ministry Of Truth would have left him alone. As is was, he was seen as a threat to Hillary Rodham, and had to be eliminated. Given his bombast and arrogance he even made it easy for them. Where's his good friend King Hussein now?

True- but as a Democrat he'd still be seen as a threat to Killery until there's a Democratic nominee.... though as a Democrat he would have enjoyed press protection anyway.

Only dems get a free pass to lie a la "I didn't know Rev. Wright held that position" kind of nonsense. Most Republicans are actually held to higher standards - and Republican hopefuls had better get that through their heads. Who knew what and when matters. Game playing is for the toddlers on the other side - we expect better.

When you pick a scapegoat, rule number one is, make damn sure he's not holding evidence incriminating you.
